  1. a The nutrient content was estimated using the Dankost 3000 dietary assessment software (Danish Catering Center, Herlev, Denmark). b The energy and fat contents were measured. The values in parentheses are calculated using Dankost 3000.c Dietary fiber content in the diet was estimated using the Dankost 3000 software, and the dietary fiber content of the flax mucilage was measured.
